On Friday (21 May 2021), the presence of 799 individuals who had defaulted on the appointment set for them through the MySejahtera application to get their vaccination caused congestion at the Indera Mulia Stadium vaccination centre at Ipoh, Perak.
According to Perak Health director Datuk Dr Ding Lay Ming, the defaulters went to the stadium in hopes of getting their vaccine jab on Friday, which was the first day of the implementation of the Enhanced Movement Control Order in the Kinta district, involving Ipoh.
“The actual number of appointments given through MySejahtera for May 21 was for 1,570 people, but there were 799 who came without an appointment and were with escorts, hence the congestion,” she added in a statement, reported BERNAMA.
Expressing her disappointment over the matter, Dr Ding advised the public to go for the vaccine jab based on the appointment date set for them.
The public should also note that, once you have selected the location and date for your AstraZeneca vaccination, you are not able to do any changes. The time of your vaccination appointment will also be given to you via the MySejahtera app.
You can always contact the Helpdesk of the application for assistance or if you cannot attend the appointment for your vaccine jab.
The registration for the AstraZeneca vaccine is also open for senior citizens starting today (23 May 2021) at 12 noon.
